Post-Christmas

Here is one of the handmade gifts I've been showing corners of, which is a second version of "Noel". I'd love to make another one of these; it's fun to think up fabric combinations for it:


I put little notes in the refrigerator on containers of turkey reserved for the cats ("Cats") and turkey that humans, like sons, are allowed to eat ("Human"). I guess Timothy thought I was actually commenting on him as a life form, for he wrote in response:


I got the center done for the blue and brown version of Stars Around the Garden this morning and got the thing assembled; center is a Feathered Star, which I've never made before, so that was pretty interesting:

Now what to do around the outside. Naturally it occurs to put another round of the little points, but do I have that many points in me??

Your little angel is cute! Your version of Stars Around the Garden is gorgeous! I am working on that too, and I really don't want to do the medallion it calls for either, too many leaves. Very nice!

WOW! I LOVE your version of the stars around the garden! Way cooler than the real version! I love it! Next border? I'm not so sure it needs points. But I do think it needs something. Just can't put my finger on it...

You can do it Karen! More blue HSTs around the border would be awesome! And that would add to the complexity! Perfect! Your angel is wonderful! Keep her away from the big R.
